Did you know, in 1896 Dr. John Harvey Kellogg (yep, the King of Corn Flakes) was the first person to use the term ‘nut butter’, as he found that soft peanuts were a good protein replacement for patients without teeth? Fast forward 122 years later and we’re having a very happy Friday eating all the nut butter, simply out of personal enjoyment and satisfaction - and of course we’re grateful for having teeth...
Always a believer in the ‘Pleasure Maximization Principle’ which I wrote about in my first book back in 1999. It states: if you’re going to have a treat, make it completely worth it. That doesn’t mean eat way too much of it but rather, to take your time in selecting a rich, but real, truly satisfying indulgence that hits the spot perfectly for YOU. These Coconut Blondies from guess whose cookbook (@whitewatercooks More Beautiful Food) are indeed THE BEST brownie/blondie ever!!! Everyone we shared them with LOVED them. Coconut flour, almond flour, dark chocolate, dried cherries and more in these crispy and chewy GF beauties! 👩🍳🍒🍫 (unknown glitch in the repetitive comments below...ahhhh technology!)
This little monster, Porter Wagoner thought he was so clever to sneak (steal) himself a taste of what has become the worlds most expensive bag of trail mix, this past Tuesday night. He enjoyed #cashews#peanuts#almonds @mmschocolate and #raisins, lots and lots of joy, and very little regret. But how was he to know that raisins are poison for the canine variety of cuddly critters? Even one single raisin can cause kidney failure and death for a pup he had 25! Thanks to quick action, amazing Doctors and staff and 3 days of treatment @5pointsanimalhosp and 12th Street Animal Clinic, he will be okay. It was a very upsetting few days and sleepless nights of #worry and #guilt. #thankful to say we have many more years #ahead with this #rotten little #lovebug! #schnoodlesofinstagram#schnoodle
